Sunday is the day dedicated to all mothers. For some it is a day of pleasure, happiness, gifts, hugs…for others it is just another day, another day fraught with worry and concern for things real and conceived. Then there are those mothers caught up in the man-made wars which affect their children, their lifestyle and their livelihoods; those moms affected by typhoons, tornadoes, floods, cyclones.
Muriella’s Corner honors moms everywhere on the planet and shares some quotes to remember moms by:
